Oh well....so on with my post.
I decided to try and make a wreath of some sort for my front door. My friend Katie from Thrify Finds and Redesigns inspired me with her burlap wreath actually made out of a vintage potato sack! So cool.
I started with this styrofoam wreath that I got from Michaels.
I used burlap scraps from another project and started wrapping the burlap around the styrofoam wreath. I used one straight pin to hold down the final end.
It ended up looking like this:
I thought it looked pretty neat just plain burlap, but I am not a plain girl and I thought it needed a little bling of some sort. So I decided to start wrapping some orange ribbon on top of the burlap. I used straight pins to pin down each end, so I could take the orange ribbon off after the Fall season and add something new!
Not too shabby:
It still needed something else, it didn't feel finished......so off to Michaels AGAIN!
I found an aisle full of these little beauties...all sizes and colors.
I tried rearranging them in different patterns around the wreath. Once I finally decided on what worked, I used straight pins to pin them into the styrofoam. That way it would be easy to remove these felt flowers and I could reuse this wreath for a different season.
And the finished product.......

1. Styrofoam Wreath- $5
